National Day of Prayer for Children
The 2010 National Day of Prayer for Children will take place on the 8th of October. The initiative invites primary schools throughout Ireland to host a day for children in mission countries.
The Day of Prayer organised by the Society of Missionary Children www.wmi.ie hopes to strengthen the bond between Irish children and missionary children. National Secretary for the organisation Jackie Pallas explains, "The focus of the National Day of Prayer falls on the children and how they can connect through prayer with their friends in mission countries. It has been so encouraging to see the increase in the numbers of schools participating since the first day of prayer in 2007."
A range of materials are developed each year to assist schools in their celebration of the event and are available to download in the Children Helping Children section..
If your school would like to become involved please contact Jackie at Jackie@wmi.ie or telephone 01-4972035
